On the opening day of the International Aviation and Space Salon at the United Engine Corporation chalet, a contract was signed between the Perm Engine Company and UAC Transport Aircraft for delivery of four PS-90A-76 engines for the upcoming Il-78M-90A aerial tanker. A certificate was also presented for the transfer of four PS-90A-76 engines for the Il-76MD-90A under the contract with the Russian Ministry of Defence, and the Act of Receipt-transfer for these engines was signed.
Sergei Velmozhkin, General Director of UAC-TA noted the importance of these documents and expressed his certainty that the companies are embarking on serious work, and that now both parties must fulfil their obligations. “The most important thing now is to hold our course, and these engines will not be the last,” said Sergei Velmozhkin.
“We prepared to sign the contract for engines for the upcoming Il-78M-90A aerial tanker relatively quickly. And as to the issue of engine delivery dates I can say with certainty that it is completely realistic to manage this by the third quarter of 2014. Already this year we are delivering the first four engines under a contract for 156 engines,” said Sergei Popov, Managing Director of PMZ.
Representatives from Aviastar-SP were also present at the signing. In particular, Sergei Dementyev, General Director said that for the Aviastar factory, the contract for new engines means additional aircraft production volumes, and this is, of course, good news.
